Summer update

Just thought I would post a quick update, as I have been up to the springs two to three times per week for the last few months. The springs for the most part have been respected by most soakers. I have had to clean up remnants from a few fires and pick up after a few late night parties (the springs are OFF limits at night and NO fires are allowed). The springs are back at peak temperatures. Thank you very much to those of you who pick up after yourselves, and a warm hello to those of you who I have met.

Meager Creek Hot Springs status

Meager Creek Hot Springs (also managed by Mike) has been open since May 15. The Forestry road is in normal conditions, it is manageable with a 2WD. There are plans on grading the road in early July, but it is still drivable at the moment. There are currently 2 caretakers at the site and the maintenance has really improved. There are 3 rocklined pools, including a newly renovated pool by the creekside. The user fee is CAN $5 per user, and camping is CAN $10 per vehicle. The campsite is 8km (5 mi) before the hot springs.
